Are you Treasuring Your Colleagues?

February 28, 2022
Written by Alina Lee

Expressing gratitude to your colleagues is shown to make YOU happier–not just the recipient of the gratitude!

However, on a typical day, only 10% of people express genuine and thoughtful gratitude to a colleague.

Some research also shows that receiving gratitude makes employees more engaged at work and more likely to help their colleagues!

Try these tips!

✔️ After a meeting, thank those who attended and be specific about what input was helpful.

✔️ Publicly give credit to those who contribute to your work or your team’s work

✔️ Give a thoughtful compliment to someone who has helped you in the past. It’s never too late to say “thank you” and it could be a great way to get back in touch if you haven’t spoken to them in a while!
